There are so few MIC hard tops made. Why Ford doesn't consider 2 door soft top.

It eyeballs that they would have to remove the rear seat to mount a folding top that would clear the hoop. Just no space for the pivot point with the rear seats in there.

The current soft tops they use are lift off, don't have the ability to drop the top, have to remove it like a hard top

Wait, Bestop has a folding soft top for the 2-door, no? Am I missing something?

If you look at the installation instructions, you will see it is for the Sunrider Top, only the section where the two front panels normally sit over the driver and passenger seat flip open. The rest of the top is fixed with the rear windows zipped in. Cannot open the back 3/4 up, must be removed.

Psst, the soft tops and their wrinkly windows are kinda ugly. I will now seek shelter.

The Bestop Trektop for the 2 door flips open for 1st & 2nd row. The rear and side panels are removable leaving the top stowed at the rear roof line. It does not have to be fully removed for open air over the rear seats.

Soft tops just wont work for some of us. They lack in security, some do not look good and weather conditions where some live....they are not practical (and will be costly to replace down the road). The hard top remains for me and I guess I just "hurry up and wait".......some more.

What is the actual current status for MIC tops for 2 Doors? I've been seeing 2 dr Bronco's pop up all over the place around my area so it seems to me they're making them.

Make the Bestop a factory option and get those Broncos rollin out of the factory!
I just installed my bestop on my 2-door last night, yeah, that needs to got back to drawing board. I love the gap between the tailgate and the top….. smh

Dude, do you actually live in Oregon**?! Because a hardtop won’t save you there any more then a softtop, at least there is less damage with a softtop.

**Yeah, I can say it, I grew up and spent my younger adult years in Oregon, was nice, now a shit hole imo.

At this point in the game for so many of us with first day reservation 2D that have either:
A. cancelled their reservation all together
B. switched to a 4 door that they didn't really want
C. 99 their order
D. or are just hanging on and waiting like myself

IMO that would probably be the ultimate kick in nuts if Ford came along and said, "okay, you 2D guys can have your 2D soft top option now".........

I would walk if that happened.

Really? The ones at Super Celebration East looked great and fit great, no gaps or wrinkled windows either. I would have gladly taken that as an option until the MIC tops were available. I wonder what they changed?

It’s a REALLY small gap, like a mil or less, just enough to let water in :(
